Texture Teacher for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

The operation on my elbow went smoothly on Monday, I was in and out within 4 hours and the staff were brilliant. My favourite part (apart from the pain relief afterwards, lol) was where the surgeon drew on my arm so that everyone knew which arm they were supposed to be working on. What a brilliant idea :)

The swelling has gone down now but it's still early days so I'm taking it easy. Thank you to everyone for your get well wishes, they are really appreciated.

So, onto my card for today - it's for the challenge reminder at Polkadoodles. The challenges are all 'Anything Goes' now but there is an optional theme - this fortnight it is 'Add Texture'.
As the start of the new term is only a few weeks away I've made a back to school card. 
I've added texture with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that has an alphabet design, to fit in with the school/college theme.

I've used the pre-coloured version of the teacher image from the Work and Play 3 CD for the focal point, and for the greeting I've used a stamp from the Sensational Sentiments set.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Craft Your Passion #325 Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart #123 Anything Goes
Glitter n Sparkle #201 Anything Goes 

Thanks for stopping by,
Katrina x
